This Service is Delayed…
Today was supposed to be the day that I revealed my business to the world. Unfortunately, there will be no such unveiling as there is still work to do on the site. We are trying to do something pretty nifty to do with responsiveness of the site to mobile devices etc and it is proving a little troublesome, however, it will not defeat my super-clever developer and all will be well! I expect that I will be able to fully launch at some point this week, if not early next.
It Has to be Perfect
The thought of ‘going live’ without the site being absolutely spot-on makes me throw up a little in my mouth. There is nothing worse than a false start, especially with such important ‘shop fronts’ as websites. Perfection can be a dangerous beast, as when do we know if it has actually been reached? When I searched Google for ‘the strive for perfection’, it returned an article with this quote from Sir Henry Royce:
“Strive for perfection in everything you do.
Take the best that exists and make it better.
When it does not exist. Design it.”
Sounds easy, right?
Working While Launching
Launching a business brings with it many challenges and needless to say, a few issues. One of the biggest challenges I have come up against so far is being able to balance carrying out the actual service of the business while at the same time creating a brand and a proposition etc etc. I’ve been fortunate enough to have a lot of requests for meetings and proposals (thanks all!) while setting up, and it is impossible to turn those down. Why? Firstly, you need to have business to have a business, and secondly, I love what I do and the buzz of meeting people and uncovering what I can do for them. Having these meetings and writing proposals has allowed me to stay sharp as I get on with the creation of my business. It is a real juggling act, however a necessary one and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Right, I must be off. Have a great week.
